Posted on May 3, 2017

TBC Brands LLC is taking its mixed service tires from the Sumitomo and Sailun brands to the 2017 WasteExpo in New Orleans.

“We recognize that the WasteExpo offers a view into the current needs and events that face the waste industry today,” says Aaron Murphy, vice president of commercial tire sales for TBC. “The Expo affords us an opportunity to maintain and develop strategic relationships within the waste industry with service companies, government entities and trucking officials among others.”

At the TBC Brands booth (No. 1354), attendees will have an opportunity to win their choice of Sumitomo or Sailun steer, drive or trailer tires through a commercial truck tire giveaway.

WasteExpo is May 9-11, 2017. The event attracts more than 13,000 industry professionals and nearly 600 exhibitors to the three-day event.
